Item description for Hand Me Another Brick: Timeless Lessons on Leadership: How Effective Leaders Motivate Themselves and Others by Charles R. Swindoll...
Overview Most of us could benefit from wise advise on how to be a more effective leader at work and at home. In this revised edition, Charles Swindoll delves deep into the life of Nehemiah to show how to handle the issues of motivation, discouragement, and adversity with integrity.
Do others look to you for leadership? Do you face a major task or shoulder heavy responsibilities? Do you want to take your leadership skills to a higher level?
When Nehemiah confronted the task of rebuilding Jerusalem's wall, he was heartbroken by the damage he saw and nearly overwhelmed by the task that lay before him. Yet through the application of timeless leadership principles, Nehemiah completed this nearly impossible project, and laid a pattern for success which is just as valid for us today.
Charles Swindoll brings his sensible and straightforward style to offer a deeply spiritual approach to the role of leader. Whatever the context, secular or ministerial, he demonstrates how to size up a task, organize and motivate a team, and respond to inevitable obstacles such as these:
Criticism and outside resistance
Financial pressures and temptations
The insights that Swindoll draws from Nehemiah's wise administration will change your approach to leadership forever.

Excellent Tool Dec 12, 2009
I have been familiar with this book for years, and use it in my counseling work. The book is becoming hard to find. Glad to be able to get it through this means.
Hand Me Another Brick Jul 6, 2009
I thought this book was exceptional. The comparison between Nehemiah surviving in his world and us surviving in ours is so up=to=date it is scary. Charles Swindoll presents Nehemiah clearly, showing his suffering, his deep devotion to God, and his unrelenting desire to do God's work, no matter what may stand in the way. Read it, give it away; it is a gift from God!
best book on Nehemiah I have ever seen Jan 17, 2009
This is absolutely the best resource on Nehemiah. It is readable, easy to understand, full of wisdom and inspiration. I learnt more about Nehemiah than any other sermon.
excellent resource Jan 13, 2008
Hand Me Another Brick is based on a solid Biblical foundation. Each concept is grounded in Scripture with references and examples. The concepts are just as applicable today as ever and God's Word is filled with God's power. This is an excellent resource for tried and proven leadership principles.
Leadership in a nut shell Aug 23, 2007
If you think that the book of Nehemiah is just part of Old Testament history, you have missed a lot. Chuck Swindoll's book demonstrates how God can move in the heart of an individual to accomplish His goals. You can also learn a lot about leadership by observing Nehemiah's methods in planning, organizing and motivating a discouraged group of people to accomplish a task. I highly reccomend this book.
